    4 - You have to submit your entry here in
        this thread before November 1, 2012.

    Bring it on!





    November 1, 2012

    Alright guys, it's time to vote.
    Yes, you heard right, the secret third
    judge is none other than YOU!

    Now I'm gonna explain how to vote:

    You, our cool and clever judges, have been
    given 10 points each which you are free to
    distribute as you please (me and Grimoire
    have 20 each). For example, if you really
    like one of entries, you can give it all
    of your 10 points. However, if you like
    two of them just as much, you can give
    them 5 each, and so on.

    You will have to wait until November 7 to
    see how me and Grimoire voted, and that is
    also when I will announce the results.
    Vote at JoHoNNY'S HEAVEN (SQUARE ENIX
    MEMBERS North America), or send Grimoire
    a message. I am excited to see how
    everytning'll turn out!
    Good luck and have fun voting! :D





    November 7, 2012

    I will hereby announce the winners. Soon.
    Jus' hold on a sec...

    ...aaaaaand Johnny saves the day! :D
    Lookie, this year we have, in fact, THREE GRAND PRIZE WINNERS!!!
    Amazing, isn't it? Grimoire, you're not - I repeat -
    NOT allowed to vote! (You are however allowed to draw three
    Grand Prize pictures. :3)

    Thing is, I simply couldn't choose this time. The entries
    were totally fantastic! Such creativity!! The comic was
    so cute and the movie poster was epic, and Cait - what
    an awesome costume!!! Therefore I am both happy that it
    turned out as it did (I knew my 20 points would come in handy!
    Go me!), and honored to have received such great entries even
    though there was a time when the future seemed as grim as
    a certain disqualified judge and I almost feared that I
    wouldn't be able to host my FANTASTIC HALLoWEEN CoNTEST
    at all this year.

    But no need to fear, Johnny's still here! :D
    Once again: THANK YOU for entering Ripax, Gaia and Cait Sith!
    You really deserve to be the Grand Prize Winner - All of You!
    Also: Another big THANK YOU to everyone who voted!

    Oh, and by the way: Ripax, Gaia and Cait
    -go ahead and feel free to pick whatever prize you want.
    Your Christmas picture doesn't necessarily have to feature a
    SQUARE ENIX character; a monster/enemy or a mascot is just as good.
    Right, Grimoire? Grimoire?
    Now, where did he run off to...? Anyway, send him a message or
    post your choice of picture over at my thread and he'll finish
    your prize in time for Christmas. CONGRATULATIONS!!!
